Product Description

It's been seven years since Yuuchi was last home in Japan. As he settles into a new school and a new routine, Yuuchi reconnects with his cute cousin Nayuki and all the other girls he knew so well as a child. But a lot of time has passed since those days, and these aren't the same innocent little girls he left so long ago...

Based on a popular PC dating game, the 2006 broadcast series Kanon is a remake of the 2002 program. High school student Yuichi Aizawa moves to snowy northern Japan to live with his cousin Noyuki, whom he hasn't seen in seven years. He doesn't remember much about the place, but he's willing to give it a try. Everything appears normal, but the placid surface conceals secrets the filmmakers only hint at. Yuichi discovers the town is populated with odd girls who remember him, although he has no memory of them. Amnesiac Makoto can recall she hates Yuichi; Ayu, who steals food from street vendors, latches onto him like a barnacle; aimless Shiori talks to him like a brother. Even the apparently normal Noyuki has quirks. Yuichi's past will undoubtedly become clearer as the plot develops and the relationships gel, but the story begins very slowly. (Rated TV PG: comic violence) --Charles Solomon

Kanon is an anime series that is similar to Air, since the visual novel was made by the same developer and the animation is done by the same studio as well. However, do not think that Kanon is a direct knock off from Air (since Kanon was released chronologically before Air). Well unto the review!

The first disc contains episodes 1-4 and these episodes pretty much introduce all of the main characters of the series. The main characters: Yuichi, Nayuki, Ayu, Shiori, Makoto, and Mai. Of course you are also introduced to side characters as well. In this disc you get to know about Yuichi and a brief history about his past with Ayu. We get to see Yuichi interacting with people whom he has met before but doesn't remember as well as meeting with people for the very first time. Pretty much that describes the first volume, since the story is mostly revolving around Yuichi as he adjusts to the place where he used to live 7 years ago. This anime falls most likely in the school life, drama, slice of life and supernatural genre, though it can be considered "harem" as well. The animation is simply stunning and the music is beautifully composed. The voice acting is great for both Japanese dub and English dub (though I prefer Japanese dub).

I highly recommend this to anyone, particularly those who are fans of anime. Recommended for any age, though I would put it at 12+.

A freind of mine recomened this series claiming that I would enjoy it. I was a little concerned that it would turn out to be nothing more than a simple harem anime along the lines of Love Hina. However after watching the first volume I can tell you that this anime seems to be more of a mystery novel. Every character in the show deals with some sort of memory loss. Also as you watch the show you can tell that something odd is occuring in the town that they live in, but you as the viewer are not quite able to put your finger on what. The charcters are lively and fun and the comic/mystery atmosphere keeps the show from dragging. I am not willing to call the series as a whole a winner yet but this volume has conviced me to buy the rest of the volumes just to see how the mystery turns out.

"Kanon" referred by many fans of the series as "Kanon 2006', an anime based on a PC visual novel from KEY/VISUAL ARTS (and later released on the Sega Dreamcast, Sony PS2 and PSP) and was released once before in a 13 episode series back in 2002 gets a remake with a 24 episode run starting back in October 2006 through March 2007.

Without rehashing 2002, I'll just focus on the 2006 series and first four episodes in this review.

"Kanon" is an anime series that focuses on the main character Aizawa Yuichi, returning to a town that he visited quite often as a child.

The cold, snowy town tends to bring him flashes of memories and makes him wonder why has he forgotten a lot of his memories from seven years ago.

He stays with his aunt Akiko and his cousin Nayuki (who is very excited to have her cousin stay with the family).

Yuichi's character seems to be a nice but a bit blunt person. In other words, he's a nice guy most of the time but also, he has a side of him that can be a bit stand-offish.

In the first volume of "Kanon" (episodes 1-4), we are introduced to several characters. The first establishes the relationship between cousins Yuichi and Nayuki.

The second introduces us to a short girl named Ayu who runs into Yuichi because she somehow forgets to pay for her Taiyaki (a pastry made from something like pancake or waffle batter and is shaped and looks like a fish but it's filled with different types of cream like cheese or custard or bean paste). You learn that Ayu and Yuichi have met each other when they were younger seven years ago and if anything, the two are almost like siblings by the way the argue with each other but at the same time, both enjoy each other's company.

As I have come to expect this is an enjoyable and funny 100 minutes of easy watching, and it will hopefully make you smile and think about your own life and problems, for me it's a winner all the way.
